Our Τechnical manager, Panagiotis Giantsis, gave the students an exclusive tour of our facilities, where they witnessed firsthand how machining and engine repairs are carried out.

Initiatives like “Learn from Industrialist” are crucial in bridging the gap between academic knowledge and real-world experience. By exposing students to different industries and providing them with hands-on experiences, they can gain a deeper understanding of their field and make informed decisions about their future career paths.

During their visit to our mechanical workshop in the Industrial Park of Schisto in Piraeus, our technical manager, Panagiotis Giantsis, gave students a unique opportunity to experience a mechanical workshop’s procedures firsthand. The tour took them through our state-of-the-art machining departments, where they observed how components are manufactured, repaired, and tested.

In addition, the group was taken to our engine governor’s department, fuel systems department, and engine parts repair area. As a result, they learned about diagnosing, disassembling, repairing, and reassembling various engine parts. They observed our skilled technicians as they meticulously inspected and repaired engine parts, such as pistons, crankshafts, cylinder heads, and valves. Ultimately, the students were amazed at the level of attention and detail required in engine repairs, as well as the complexity of the process.

Mechanical workshop tour highlights 

As many students reported, the highlight of the visit was seeing a complete Yanmar diesel engine from our spare parts stock. The engine served as a unique educational experience, allowing them to connect theoretical knowledge to practical application. Taking such a close look allowed them to understand better the complex processes involved in marine engine repairs and manufacturing. The visit to the spare parts stock was undoubtedly the tour’s highlight, as many students reported that they had never had the opportunity to see an engine in such detail before.

Furthermore, Panagiotis answered the students’ questions throughout the tour, providing them with in-depth insights into the processes and technologies used in our facilities.

Overall, the experience left a lasting impression on the marine technical high school, giving them a newfound appreciation for the importance of mechanical workshops, engine repairs, and manufacturing. It gave them an invaluable opportunity to see the practical application of their theoretical knowledge. They left a deeper understanding of the skills required to succeed in the marine industry.
